I asked the Twitter folk if I should post the soundtrack I listened to during the final editing stages of Knife a.k.a. Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter, and the consensus seemed to be that yes, people are interested in such things. So here, with special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] megancrewe (who has a much broader knowledge of recent music than I do, particularly where female artists are concerned), are some samples from the Highly Unofficial Soundtrack for Knife:

If I had to pick the one song on this list that I felt was utterly and completely perfect for this book, it would be "Somebody's Daughter" by Beth Orton. "Rock In This Pocket" by Suzanne Vega comes a very close second, but believe it or not that song fits better with Wayfarer a.k.a. Rebel than it does here...

Anyway, if you do give the songs a listen, let me know what you think!
I forgot the main bit! [/Mr. Bean]

I am compiling a soundtrack to help me get into the right headspace for writing Indigo. Peter Himmelman's Synesthesia album came first to mind, as did various selections from Talk Talk and David Sylvian. Are there any other artists or songs my f-list can recommend that have the right feel to them? I'm looking for stuff that's atmospheric, complex and slightly dark; experimental yet still melodic; nothing too angry or dissonant, but nothing too fluffy and simplistic, either.

Suggestions, links etc. welcomed in comments.
